It’s official! The Redmi 8A and Redmi 8 from Xiaomi are officially launching in Nepal tomorrow. Both the phones are budget offerings that have a lot to offer. The pricing is also expected to be unlike anything we have seen before. But before we elaborate more on that, let us talk about what these two phones have to offer.
Redmi 8A Overview
The Redmi A series of smartphones is one of the most beloved budget line up. The phone, this time around, packs a 6.2 inches HD (720 x 1520 pixels) display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. Sitting on top of the panel is a teardrop style notch which houses an f/2.0 8MP selfie shooter. On the flip side, the rear is equipped with an f/1.8 12MP camera.
Talking about the performance, the Redmi 8A packs the octa-core Qualcomm SDM439 Snapdragon 439 SoC backed by 2/3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Although there is no option for higher storage capacity, the phone does have the option to expand the memory via a micro-sd card up to 512GB.
In the software side of things, the 8A runs MIUI 10 based on Android 9.0 Pie. The new MIUI 11 update will soon make its way to the phone. Finally, powering the device all up is a large 5000mAh non-user removable battery. The cell is backed by an 18W Fast charger and a USB Type-C port.

This combination is made by an f/1.8 12MP and a 2MP depth sensor. These two cameras work in conjunction to produce some great images at the budget pricing.
In the performance department, the Redmi 8 also packs the octa-core Qualcomm SDM439 Snapdragon 439 SoC backed by 3/4GB of RAM and 32/64GB of internal storage respectively. The memory of the phone can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to 512GB.

The Redmi 8A and Redmi 8 will launch tomorrow at noon (12 PM). The cost of the phones has been kept under tight wraps as we still don’t know their official pricing. One thing though that has been teased is how ludicrous the pricing is going to be. People are going to be flabbergasted with the new pricing strategy of the two phones. We expect it to change the entire scenario of the Nepali budget smartphone market.
